MacDonald Clan

Known as one of the largest clans in Scotland, the Macdonald clan can trace their lineage back to Domhnall mac Raghnaill – the eponymous progenitor of the clan.

The Macdonalds held lands across the Highlands and Islands but particularly settled in and around the Inner Hebrides and Ross.

The traditional seat of Clan Macdonald was at Finlaggan Castle on the Isle of Islay. The castle was once the seat of the Lords of the Isles. It is now ruined and has been so since at least the 16th century.

The current clan chief is Godfrey Macdonald, 8th Baron Macdonald.
